What: Scientists at Edinburgh University in Scotland used extremely high pressures to turn things like peanuts to diamond.
What the fashion heads say: From Style Dash, “Given the dirty dealings and unethical practices of the diamond trade, I’m pleased to hear that the days of the status quo are numbered. Just the same I doubt many women will forgo the “Diamond is Forever” mentality for a rock made in a lab from jar of Skippy.”
What the Scientists say: from the BBC, “Obviously large gem-quality diamonds would be extremely expensive, so we are looking at ways to make them artificially… Many carbon containing materials can be converted into diamond including peanut butter.”
What I say: No wonder I like peanut butter.
